Thornwell Halloween Carnival Returns

Thornwell Halloween Carnival Returns

The Thornwell Halloween Carnival is back for another year at Presbyterian College. The annual event will take place 4-6 p.m. on Oct. 30 on the front lawn of Springs Student Center. This event is open for all PC students and families to participate in as well as all of those staying at the Thornwell Cottages as well.

Student Volunteer Services (SVS) coordinates the Halloween carnival each year, and PC’s Big Brother/Big Sister program hosts the event. Various other student organizations volunteer to create booths with fun activities and candy for the kids. Some booths in past years have had face painting, bobbing for apples, sack races, corn hole, and other games.

This year, SVS is working on creating a hay bale maze for the kids, and there is the possibility of a tiny ninja warrior obstacle course also being available for the kids to enjoy.
